John Connolly Exhibition Preview ‘From Here to There’

04 May, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The exhibition will be on from May 4th – 19th with a preview on Friday May 4th from 8:00 – 5:00pm.

Although John is a Derbyshire based artist inspired by the stunning colours and textures of the Peak District, he is also inspired by visits to the New Forest, the South Coast and the south west coast of Cornwall.

This body of work concentrates mainly on the Landscape, Rivers and Woodland in and around the Peak District, exploring the colour, light and textures in a variety of seasons using acrylics and mixed media – the ‘Here’.

The ‘There’ will be a number of paintings inspired by The New Forest and The Coast. 

He has been experimenting with different techniques and feel pleased with the way his work is beginning to loosen up. 

John says: “I am trying to move forwards to produce work which is more about colour, light and texture and much less about topography”.
